Sometimes that's true, others it isn't. I have many GREAT relationships with people who I have only spoke with through IM. Also, sometimes participating in "beta", for lack of better terms, can prove to be beneficial. I could either have tried the system and possibly make a couple bucks (nothing to lose) or I could have completely ignored it because of its premature state and gain nothing. Obviously, if I had my banner inventory sold I never would have tried this system. Risk, makes life interesting.
